Research Interests

I am interested in research questions which pertain to how microbial life evolved, persist, and acquire energy in extreme environments such as the deep biosphere and in polar environments - environments in which nutrients, energy and biomass are scarce, and life is potentially operating at its limits. I'm interested in detecting and measuring microbial activity in such extreme environments, as well as the insight that -omics technologies can give us into the functionality and viability of microbial ecosystems in these environments which are difficult to study using traditional culture based methodology.
